Gradient

Two greens and a pink

1

The dots are messy but the colors are pretty. I saw a beautiful dot gradient on Instagram and mine looks downright ugly next to it. But eh…. ๐Ÿ˜€

I really like these two colors together. I think I had a dress in that combination long long long ago. ๐Ÿ˜›

Fantasy drama

1
Without topcoat

When I said I was working on the gradients, I was not kidding. I am having so much fun dab dabbing! ๐Ÿ˜€
I wasn’t sure how these shades will pair with each other, but I think the delicate green and the striking teal work beautifully together.

With topcoat

These are two of the Limited Edition nail paints from Lakme’s Royal Opulence by Sabyasachi. I googled that! ๐Ÿ˜› They are both gorgeous colors. Two coats here with topcoat. Dry fast. The shade Green Drama must be a relaunch because I saw the exact color in Lakme’s color crush range which is 100 bucks cheaper than these (?). And as beautiful as the green is, the teal is the stunner of this collection.

One for the Crimson Red!

1
Lotus Herbals Crimson Red, Sally Hansen Black Out, Nyx Dark Glitter

I have a cousin who is crazy about the red-black pairing. She’d love these. I like them too. What I do not like is the cleanup. Now to the gradient. I am working on it. I should have a good one by the end of month…or by the end of next month. ๐Ÿ˜›

And something totally unexpected happened while I was doing the gradient. I have my first completely used up bottle of polish. It felt good scooping the last bit of polish. Well timed too,as I was doing a gradient.I am not big red polish person, I think this was the only true red creme polish I had and it was only 8ml. which explains how managed to finish it. Anyway! There was never a better reason to buy a new polish. Huh?! ๐Ÿ™‚

Chambor Intense 472, China Glaze Spontaneous

I picked up a new polish from Chambor. A very pretty and very glossy coral creme. I was so enamored by it that I dared to do a gradient again. Yup! Gradients make me nervous. ๐Ÿ˜› This one turned out okay till I topcoated it. The topcoat somehow washed away the purple because I am very sure it looked darker earlier. Stranger things have happened so I will let this one pass. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am in love with the accent.I rarely ever feel that way about my nails, so yes strangeness continues. ๐Ÿ˜›

And the lazy people at Chambor should have named the polishes!! A number! Really!?

Snow White and the Colors

Viviana Snow White, Zoya Pippa, Colobar Orange Mimosa, Colorbat Exclusive 44, Barry M Yellow Topaz

I did this last week. But it took me a while to get over the trauma that was- clean up. It took me longer to clean up than it took to do all the nails. But once I got past that I loved the mani.

Tried doing a gradient with Revlon electric. Didn’t like it much so added the dots.The dots revived the sad looking gradient. ๐Ÿ˜€

Blued Pink

Colorbar Exclusive 44, 3 coats

Stunning!! Right?
It is my favourite pink at the moment. The formula on this is problematic but manageable.Its dries darker on nails than in the bottle also it is tad more coral-y in real life than this picture shows.

Awful sponging apart, I loved this mani and I love these two polishes together. They need to be dot-ted together. ๐Ÿ˜› Very soon

OPI Ink & Its All Greek To Me

I had two polishes and a piece of sponge on table. End result was okay. It took me some time to learn to ignore the flaw(s)!! ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway the two polishes do look incredible together.
